The sustainability revolution needs all voices to be heard. Too often, women, LGBT+, mature workers, and people of ethnic and other minorities that are viewed as diverse, feel shut out of new opportunities and growth, sometimes in very subtle ways. This panel will shed light on this predicament. Each speaker will provide their own personal stories of their own career challenges and how through mentorship, they overcame obstacles – later becoming a mentor to others. Additionally, this session includes an interactive session in which participants will commit to doing their part to achieve collaboration, inclusivity and change within their own organizations.
Session Objectives:
  • Empower attendees to make a difference by learning the role of mentoring -- including and encouraging the next generation to take action -- in achieving equity and potential in the workforce.
  • Understand that being mentored and mentoring is a lifelong process, a strategic tool that can be used to navigate pivotal career transitions through influential relationships.
  • Learn how to identify potential mentors and cultivate relationships from the stories and advice presented by three sustainability leaders.
  • Through an interactive workshop, help participants identify unconscious bias -- discuss when, why and how the audience has felt excluded -- and how they can overcome it through mentorship to create a more inclusive workplace for all.

This session is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 1.25 LFA credits
  • 1.25 AIA LU credits
